Teaching Info

I teach in a relaxed, friendly manner. I enjoy my students and I enjoy everything about music.
I try to convey an enjoyment and understanding of music to my students along with the playing skills required. It’s a broad approach but I encourage my students to work to high standards.
I teach toward exams by Royal Schools of Music as well as Trinity College, covering everything needed.
I will also tutor for band work, especially in the context of contemporary church music.
I also help students preparing for school music assessments.
I have technical expertise with computers, sound systems, etc and will tutor in the area of digital music production.
I teach piano in Te Atatu South but can come to your place if required.
